Hungarian food and/or cooks?

CArdai | Apr 7, 201408:54 AM

I know, I know -- the time of the Hungarian restaurant in NYC has come and gone, and I'll search for an alternative to Andre's in vain. But...I'm searching: does anyone on here know of any place in the city that still offers Hungarian food? The classic sort -- not the (fine) Austrian fare at Wallse or Seasonal or Sabarsky, not the item or two of Slovakian fare at Korzo, but actual Hungarian food, either a restaurant or a store?

Failing that...does anyone know someone who can cook classic Hungarian meals and would enjoy doing so for the upcoming 83rd birthday of a fine fellow (my father) who misses the flavors of his youth and would smile the broadest smile you've ever seen if someone made a decent plate of stuffed cabbage, perhaps with chestnut puree for dessert?

All ideas and suggestions welcome, short of a plane trip to Budapest...

The Hungarian Pastry Shop,
Andre's Hungarian Bakery,
The GoodFellas Of Long Island City,
Cafe Sabarsky,
